Are micro-degrees the future of higher education? - ALIZAH SALARIO, Metro

At Udacity, tech-savvy students earn nanodegrees for a fraction of the cost of a traditional degree. We live in tiny houses, make micropayments and use mini fridges. Naturally, now we can also earn micro-credentials. As the name suggests, micro-credentials quailfy individuals to execute specific skills, often in the fields math, science and technology. They’re earned in far less time than traditional degrees — and for a fraction of the cost. Think of them as the next generation of MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses), only more comprehensive, and with a credential at the finish line.
